Lottery Funding

What a Fantastic way for us to start the New Year, .. The journey we have been on in the back ground since May 2021 when we first Applied for the National Lottery Community Fund, has been a roller coaster of emotions for us, so desperately dependent on our application going to panel,.. which it did 3 times, over the last 6 months, with 3 Applications, to 3 Panels, as we realised without Funding, we would not have survived the next 6 months, after 13 years of Spectrum/Wasp providing an invaluable service within our Local Community for our Children/Young People, Parents/Carers. TNLCF were ourstrength/hope as to where we needed to be ‘Moving Forward into the Future’, with numbers of Children and Young People rising fourfold, needing our service and support, throughout the last 2 years of the Covid Pandemic,.. then on November 25th 2021 we received the most ‘Amazing Telephone Call’ to say our Application had been Granted and we had been Awarded £331.069.00 over 3 years, giving us £110,356.33 per year to sustain Spectrum/Wasp, .. This was the ‘Best Lottery Win’ for our Children’s Charity that anyone could have Wished for, we were just so elated, excited, speechless (should I say) and in tears, to have this opportunity for our Children, Young People and Families of Spectrum WASP, in ‘MAKING a DIFFRENCE’ to start 2022...

Welcome to Spectrum WASP (We Are Special People)!

We are a registered charity (number: 1146664) formed to support Parents and Carers with Children/Young People on the autistic spectrum with Disabilities, Special and Additional Needs from ages 5 to 18 years. We provide a safe and welcoming space where Children/Young People can enjoy a wide range of activities and form new friendships.

There really is something for everyone and we are very proud to provide fully inclusive, warm and friendly atmosphere. Everyone is treated with respect and as an individual with a tailored plan to meet their personal needs. Both you and your Children/Young People are fully looked after and supported and there aren’t any activities or outings that we won’t do - we take great care of your Children/Young People and treat them like any other.

We have a monthly programme that’s full of activities for everyone to enjoy, including Parents/Carers’ meetings, coffee mornings, residential short breaks away, family days out, creative workshops, friendship groups, go karting, quad biking, swimming, gymnastics and more. You can take part in our talent show, enjoy a trip to the panto and have fun at our Christmas party. Not only that, but siblings and extended family are welcome too so no-one feels left out.

There’s always something going on and plenty to get involved with and we’d love to have you join us!

Why not explore our information on activities for Children/Young people, along with how Parents/Carers can benefit from support from people who understand. If you would like to support us by volunteering or donating, check out our Become a Volunteer and Fund Our Cause pages!
